Children must be three years of age by August this current school year to be eligible for Kindergarten 1, five years of age by August this current school year to be eligible for Kindergarten 3 and six years of age by August this current school year to be eligible for first grade.

Every attempt will be made to place the child in the grade they are applying for. However, if through assessment tests or other evidence, it is determined that the child may not be adequately prepared in school work or behavior for the next sequential grade level, it may be necessary that the student repeat the previous grade.

The child should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school. Therefore, he is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teachers and administrator in their prescribed roles at AHIS.

The school reserves the right to not admit/re-admit any student where it is determined by the administrator that enrollment would not be in the best interest of the school, the family, or the child. Families who have outstanding balances at another private school are not eligible for enrollment at Asian Hope International School.

Scholarship Applications

Asian Hope International School has limited scholarship places available. These are awarded on a “means” basis. To find out if your child will qualify you need to complete a regular school application form as well as a scholarship application form (this form is available from the school office). You will also need to provide a copy of your recent 3 month bank statement as well as a reputable reference from someone who is able to vouch for your situation. These applications are reviewed by the management team in January each year and funds allocated accordingly. If your child’s application is successful you will then be notified by the office and required to meet with the principal. All scholarship students are required to resubmit an application update every year and it is expected that if your finances have improved that you will consider increasing the amount you pay for tuition fees. It also needs to be noted that your child’s attitude towards his schooling, his attendance record and parent’s commitment and involvement in the school will be taken into consideration when reviewing ongoing scholarships each year.
